IUENNA

IUENNA (openIng the soUthErn jauNtal as a micro-regioN for future Archaeology) is an innovative project to strengthen the application of digital methods in archaeology in Austria by pursuing complex cultural-historical questions, shaping Digital Humanities in Classics, and securing cultural knowledge for the long-term. IUENNA is funded by the Go!Digital 3.0 funding program of the Austrian Academy of Sciences and based on the archaeological micro-region of the Jauntal (Carinthia/Austria).



IUENNA involves the State Museum for Carinthia (kärnten.museum), the Austrian Archaeological Institute (ÖAI) at the Austrian Academy of Sciences (ÖAW), the Austrian Center for Digital Humanities and Cultural Heritage (ACDH-CH) at the ÖAW, the Federal Monuments Authority (BDA), and the archaeological company ARDIG – Archäologischer Dienst GesmbH.


The image shows 9 pictures of different spects of digital data in the project IUENNA: retro-digitized old maps of the project area, aerial photos showing the Jauntal, Globasnitz/Iuenna, and the 'pilgrim center' at Hemmaberg, paradata recording of the archaeological-geophysical measurements employing ground-penetrating RADAR and magnetics by using photos, graphics showing how data is organized in advanced file folder structures, and geo-information systems visualize the find sites (kärnten.museum – ÖAI/ÖAW; Jabornegg-Altenfels 1870)

IUENNA follows an extensive open science approach, using the Late Antique ’pilgrimage center‘ of the Hemmaberg with its decade-long excavations and related sites (Globasnitz/Iuenna, Jaunstein, and St. Stefan) as a case study. IUENNA will provide, for the first time in Austria for Classics, an outstanding model study and a sustainable long-term archive of an elaborated excavation at one of the most critical Late Antique sites of the Southeast Alpine region and its vicinity and integrate all data. All archaeological research data available will be digitized, structured in an all-new inclusive and hierarchically organized file folder system, and enhanced with metadata, which can serve as an example for future projects for Austrian archaeology and beyond.


Data will be made available online in full open access using the repository ARCHE (A Resource Centre for the HumanitiEs) of the ACDH-CH and an open-source web-mapping application.

Team

All our project team members complement each other just as ideally in their skills, whereas two major external partners support the project team: Hence, experts from ÖAW’s ACDH-CH take care of data long-term archiving in ARCHE and are active in an advisory role. Moreover, most of the digitization and georeferencing tasks are done by members of ARDIG. IUENNA’s project team is composed of three staff members:


Dominik Hagmann

Principal investigator 01 (project coordinator | kärnten.museum [lead-institution])

Dominik holds a Ph.D. degree (with honors) from the University of Vienna, Austria (Doctoral School for Cultural and Historical Studies) on his thesis ‘Roman Rural Landscapes in Noricum. Archaeological Studies on Roman Settlements in the Hinterland of Northern Noricum.’ Highly interested in applying digital techniques to his research questions regarding Roman settlement and landscape archaeology, he also involves various aspects of (digital) public archaeology in his projects.
He is currently focusing on various archaeological sites in rural and urban areas in Austria, primarily using geographic information systems and 3d-recording.
Further, he is a lecturer for funerary archaeology at the Department of Evolutionary Anthropology at the University of Vienna and a member of the research network Human Evolution and Archaeological Sciences (HEAS).
As PI1, he takes care of the archaeological project part, data management and preparation for long-term archiving, scientific analysis, project representation, social media, and coordinates all external services.


Franziska Rainer

Principal investigator 02 (ÖAI/ÖAW)

Franziska holds a Dipl.-Ing.-diploma in Applied Geosciences from the Montanuniversität Leoben, Austria, and has extensive experience in applied geophysics. She has worked in ÖAI’s technical unit since 2020 and participated in various archaeological-geophysical prospection campaigns. Franziska has been significantly involved in data collection and evaluation in many Mediterranean survey projects and conducted all recent geophysical surveys in the projected study area. Her main fields cover geophysical surveys and data interpretation, cartographic visualizations, and the supervision and further development of ÖAI’s geophysical equipment pool.
As PI2, she is systematically involved in the processing and interpreting of geophysical data, cartographic visualizations, and contributing to scientific analysis.


Nicola Math

Nicola holds a MA degree from the University of Vienna, Austria, and participated, among others, in excavations at the Hemmaberg and various third-party-funded projects. She has a vast knowledge of recording archaeological material culture and is very familiar with the material culture of the project area. Nicola will bear her extensive expertise in find recording, mainly about the artifacts from the Roman period burials and funerary structures; furthermore, she is involved in the retro-digitization process of analog research data and data management tasks.
